Maxine Waters Oversees A Black Man's Traffic Stop

Congresswoman Maxine Waters is the Sheriff's, Sheriff.

Driving past a traffic stop involving a black man she stopped to make sure they stayed in line.

Waters was driving in her district when she saw an L.A. County Sheriff patrol car. The officers were in the process of detaining a black man and she hit the brakes and jumped out.

The deputies told her she parked illegally, so she was in danger of getting a ticket, but Sheriff Waters was effective otherwise.
